A while back, when we recorded Episode 44, we discussed the things we were addicted too at the time, and they were all totally awesome. However, it got us thinking about some of the not-so-great geek addictions of days gone by, and we realized that we better get these skeletons out of the closet… you know, before they reanimate and attempt to kill us. Join us this week as we discuss some of our past obsessions that have either blown out bank accounts, crushed our social lives, or just flat out sucked. So lock up your bank accounts, put away the credit cards, and for the love of the gods, be with the friends you’re with, as you listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Gaming as a hobby and the experiences it brings can swing from one end of the spectrum to the other. Be it tabletop RPGs, online gaming, or a good old-fashioned roundabout with a board game, there are always inherent pros and cons when it comes to living the gamer lifestyle (or life in general). We here at To-Ag Studios have been fortunate to have maintained a core gaming group, but what’s a solitary gamer to do when a local group isn’t available? Join us this week as we discuss the process of gaming with strangers and offer our insights on how both enjoy the positive experiences as well as survive the not so positive ones. So, pop those social anxiety pills, make sure your PING is decent, and definitely DON’T smell like cold-cuts and prepare yourself for a new episode of Monkey in the Cage.
